Odds for the third week of the 2015 playoffs, presented from the home team’s point of view:
|Conference Championship Playoff Odds|
|Home Team||Visiting Team||Score Diff||Win Prob||Est. Point Spread|
|Carolina Panthers||Arizona Cardinals||-1.40||0.198||-10.4|
|Denver Broncos||New England Patriots||1.972||0.879||14.6|
Last week the system went 2-2, for a total record of 5-3. The system favors Arizona markedly, and Denver by an even larger margin. That said, the teams my system does not like have already won one game. There have been years when a team my system didn’t like much won anyway. That was the case in 2009, when my system favored the Colts over the Saints. The system isn’t perfect, and the system is static. It does not take into account critical injuries, morale, better coaching, etc.
